The story of
The Hattberry Tree
By R.E. Bertlow
In the Wild jungles in the land of ZuuZune grows the very rare Hattberry Tree tree.
You might ask, What is a Hattberry Tree tree? And that would be a very good question.
Why most people have never even heard of the Hattberry Tree tree.
You are also probable wondering why it is called Tree twice? Or why is it called the Hattberry Tree tree to begin with?.
And the are all very good questions.
Lets start from the point our path begins. What is a Hattberry Tree tree.
The Hattberry Tree tree, grows in the Wild jungles in the land of ZuuZune…. oh I already mentioned that.
The Hattberry Tree tree is the one and only tree that produces genuine chandelier crystals.
I know what your thinking the Crystals are mass produced at a factory in Franklin NC. You would be correct in part but that is not the whole story.
As a matter of fact if there hadn’t been a Hattberry Tree tree the whole idea for a chandelier would have never come about.
It was the ZuuZunes warriors need for light reflecting sources and impeccable taste that led to the creation of the first chandelier.
One day while hunting for reflective surfaces wilds of the M-ruled forest an Chad the tribes elder Narcissistman (each tribe had two a younger and and elder.) discovered the Hattberry Tree tree’s. When he had inadvertently stumbled upon and entered the caves of Swarovski.
For a moment he just stare at the beauty that surrounded him. In awe of it’s magnificence.
Every Surface reflecting light.
The mirror like walls of the cave itself! The tree’s with they’re hanging crystals!
At first he couldn’t believe his eyes.
All around him were Hattberry Tree tree’s. He was surrounded by them.
Why it was like being in a great light. As the sun shine into the caves of Swarovski.
Of course at first they weren’t called Hattberry Tree trees at all.
Originally they were to be called Chadelier Tree trees.
That was until they discovered the berry of the tree.
Chad left the caves of Swarovski to head back to the village and tell everyone of his great discovery of light reflecting surfaces.
That night Chad told his fellow tribes people of his great discover and how he had found the infinite source and they would be able to harness it’s power to keep there little Greenwich Village humming along smoothly.
Later the villages of LA and Palm would share in Chads discovery but I jump ahead of myself to an almost inconsequential point. Anywho…..
The next morning Chad and Biff the tribes elder and younger Narcissistmen set out to the caves of Swarovski along with Amber and Tiffany the tribes elder and younger Narcissistwomyn.
As they headed out they left the village and entered the S-ruled jungle making there way down the paths with barely room to walk two by two for all the stuff spilling out from beyond the pathway.
As the left they S-ruled jungle and set foot into the M-ruled jungle there they saw it, The great caves of Swaroski.
It was still early so the sun was just on the rise as the entered the caves.
The four watched as the sun began to illuminate the cave and the cave became like the reflective surfa9ces of a thousand disco balls.
Why it was so bright they had to dawn their Stunn glasses just to be able to absorb and process all the reflected light from the mirror and crystals.
Tiffany decided to break off a piece of the mirror and to her amazement it immediately grew back.
Biff seeing this decided to take a crystal off one of the trees and it to immediately grew back.
Ahhhh said Chad this truly is a wonderful discovery.
Why is it called the Hattberry Tree tree and not the Chadelier Tree tree?
It is a very peculiar thing. While everyone agreed that it should be called a Chadelier because after all it was discovered by Chad. Well not everyone agreed Oddly enough it was Chad himself who became opposed to the idea of it being called a Chadelier Tree tree. As he studied the tree more he would learn a great many things that while may not change the world they were certainly interesting. One of these thing he discovered is that the tree seem to develop and grow berries. They grew two (2) on a stem and when they where completely ripened they were a multitude of colors and they had two stems. One that secured it to the plant which attached at the bottom center of the berry and the a False stem that attached at the top cent of the berry. It resembled an elaborate hat. Each stem of berries had matching hats with minor variances but, no two stems of berries had the same hats.
Chad took this discover to the council and petitioned to have the tree renamed the Hattberry Tree tree which because he had discovered it they were happy to do.
What is a Hattberry?
In a nut shell they are an inedible fruit that have two stems. The one on bottom secures it to the plant and the one on top is false. By the time the fruit is completely ripened the upper stem has morphed into and taken on a Hat like look to it. Because of the false stems hat like shape the plant came to be know as the Hattberry Tree tree. The inside of the Hattberry is filled with Bugle seeds Which are favored by the Blue Beatty Beaks one of only two species know to inhabit the tree.
The Characteristics and Habitat of the Hattberry Tree tree.
The Hattberry Tree tree is know for it’s Pinwheel flowers, Curly Q’s and Mosaic in appearance brown glass like trunk as well as some of the branch bases. Suspended Dew Crystals that develop of time hang from what appear to be golden threads but are actually little threads of plant fiber that grow from the main plants branches and Curly Q’s. The morning dew in the caves of Swarovski would slide down these threads where the would collect at the bottom and over time would develop the dew crystals. Because they developed over time they had a chiseled cut appearance of them and the fact that they hardened like glass made them perfect for the villages need to refract light to create more sources of light energy. They would soon learn that after a crystal had been picked it would replenish itself seven (7 )times. They also noted that the tree had what became know as the Mother Pearl Crystal. It was the only crystal that does not replenish it self seven (7) times. It in actuality drops to the ground at some point starting a new tree. After the tree has crystaled ( the process of creating crystals) seven (7) times it’s flowers petrify as do the Curly Q’s. The tree is inhabited by only two species of birds both unique to the Hattberry Tree tree . The Blue Beatty Beak and The Red Curlys.
The Hattberry Flower:
The flower of the Hattberry Tree tree is just as unique as the berry and it’s inhabitants are. The Hattberry flower is distinguished by it’s Pinwheel shape and the crystal, pearl, metallic and other reflective or effervescent adornments it seems to develop over time. Each tree with have what are know as the “Grand Three” they are the three tallest pinwheel flowers that rise from the center of the trees trunk. The rest of the flower branch out from stems off the main trunk. Flower size is fairly standard except for the ”Grand Three” they display with 2 medium size flowers and on large flower. The Hattberry flower is know as the original pinwheel.
About the Birds of the Hattberry Tree tree.
The birds of the Hattberry Tree tree are unique to the Hattberry Tree tree as well as to the caves of Swarovski. They have never been seen anywhere accept in the caves or directly outside of the caves.
Blue Beatty Beaks:
Blue Beatty Beaks are characterized by there blue color and the adornment to their Beaks and bodies with the Bugle seeds from inside the Hattberries.
Red Curlys are named for the way that there colorful plumage curls mimicking the Curly Q’s of the Hattberry Tree tree. One of the unique features of the Red Curyls is that while the main part of their bodies are red their curly feathers are in varying shades from Bright Yellow and orange with Red to Pink Purple and Red combinations. Almost all combinations include a few white curly’s and the tail feather are mimicked by the head plumage or headdress of the bird.
As you can see the Hattberry Tree tree is a very unique tree that grows in abundance in only caves of Swarovski .
